This month we feature the beautiful photography work of Magdalena Smolarska, tango and portrait photographer based in London.

The image portrays renowned tango dancers and teachers, Stefania Colina and Juan-Martin Carrara during their recent performance at Carablanca, the long-running and popular Friday night Milonga in London.

We love the perspective and movement with poise. Looking down on the dancers in this way gives such a different insight into their connection and feeling for the music. The colours are deliciously rich and tangible to the eye, the air thick as if you could walk through rooms; the light on the dancefloor and the surrounding darkness filled with invisible eyes.

Its such a lovely shot Magdalena.

About the shoot: As part of the SHOOT! Featured tango photography project, our aim is to recognise the talent and skill of tango photographers around the world by presenting their favourite image on Tangofolly.

How to feature your photo: If you would like to feature an image on Tangofolly email Rita in the first instance.
